Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is one of the most common infections among dental patients today. More than 75 per cent of North Americans over 35 years of age have some form of this disease. Although many are infected, few are aware of it: In a recent study, 8 out of 10 people surveyed believed they did not have periodontal disease, but 7 out of 10 exhibited one or more symptoms.

Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, and it is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults. Good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations are essential in the prevention and early detection of gum disease, which can develop without warning signs. When there are symptoms, they can include the inflammation and infection of gums, ligaments, bone, and other tissues surrounding the teeth. Gingivitis (gums) and periodontitis (gums and bone) are the two main forms of periodontal disease, which is also known as pyorrhea.
